Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

COVID-19 Update (September 2020)

After careful consideration and planning, the Faculty of Education has made the difficult decision not to run our Sensational Saturday’s program for the winter 2021 season.

We want to thank you for your patience, flexibility and understanding during this time. You can contact us at with any inquiries you may have.

About LEAP

LEAP campers are gifted/highly able children and youth in grades 1-9 who are looking for a day camp experience that piques their curiosity and has a large “fun” quotient. LEAP camps focus on enrichment and challenge in a fun, interactive atmosphere. Our programs emphasize highly interactive, hands-on learning that taps into higher order thinking skills. All courses are developed and taught by certified teachers and/or experts in the field.

Programs run at our Waterloo campus two different times during the year:

  • Our Sensational Saturdays Enrichment Program camp runs for six Saturday mornings from the end of January through the beginning of March. Registration typically opens in November and closes in early January.
  • Our Summer Enrichment Program runs for two weeks in July. We offer a variety of half-day and full-day camps. Each week runs independent of the other. Campers can attend just one week or both. Registration typically opens in March and closes at the end of May.

If you would like to be placed on our email list to be notified of future camp offerings, contact

Our Winter camp will not be running for 2021. Stay tuned for more information about this program in the Fall of 2021.

Summer Camp

We had a great Summer of STEAM with LAUNCH Waterloo, and our leaders were very excited to see so many familiar faces on their screens! Thank you for your well wishes and engagement in our virtual summer 2020 program.

We would also like to thank and acknowledge the generosity of Kitchener Waterloo Community Foundation - Waterloo Region Record and Lyle S. Hallman Foundation Kids to Camp Fund for their support!

Information on our Summer 2021 camp program will be updated Spring 2021
